Cornerstone Breaks Ground On New Homes in West Topeka

September 18th, 2014 was a special day for Cornerstone of Topeka  We broke ground on our next new homes project! Mayor Wolgast even assisted us with a golden shovel. These three new three bedroom homes will be built on previously undeveloped land on SW Mission one block behind 12th and Gage.

The three homes while still being in a low to moderate income neighborhood are the new Western boundary for our 160 housing units in Topeka. We are excited to be “breaking ground” in new territory for Cornerstone of Topeka!  The project is financed by the City of Topeka’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Department and Capital City Bank.

Cornerstone Cuts Ribbon on Three Home Project Near 12th and Gage

May 14th, 2015 was a big day for Cornerstone! Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for three newly constructed three bedroom single family homes in the 1100 Block of SW Mission Ave, (One block west of 12th and Gage). An important component in Cornerstone’s mission is to revitalize Topeka neighborhoods and these beautiful homes fit the bill.

It was great to have the new tenants on hand for the ceremony and cut the ribbon with the red coats from the Topeka Chamber of Commerce and Cornerstone board members.
